NEW STANDARDS PROJECTS

Development work has begun on the following new or revised standards. Directly and materially affected individuals are invited to contribute to the development of such standards. Those wanting to participate may contact the Program Manager listed with the document.

Participation on AWS Technical Committees and Subcommittees is open to all persons.

A5.02/A5.02M:20XX, Specification for Filler Metal Standard Sizes, Packaging, and Physical Attributes
This specification prescribes the requirements for standard sizes and packages of all types of welding filler metals, allowing these physical attributes to be incorporated by reference into the individual specification. The annex lists the manner by which the filler metal specification may refer to appropriate requirements in this specification.

  • Stakeholders: Filler metal manufacturers
  • Revised Standard
  • Staff Contact: R. K. Gupta, ext. 301

A5.17/A5.17M:20XX, Specification for Carbon Steel Electrodes and Fluxes for Submerged Arc Welding
This specification provides requirements for the classification of solid and composite carbon steel electrodes and fluxes for submerged arc welding. Electrode classification is based on chemical composition of the electrode for solid electrodes, and chemical composition of the weld metal for composite electrodes. Flux classification is based on the mechanical properties of weld metal produced with the flux and an electrode classified herein. Other requirements include sizes, marking, manufacturing and packaging. The form and usability of the flux are also included.

  • Stakeholders: Manufacturers and consumers for carbon steel electrodes and fluxes for SMAW
  • Revised Standard
  • Staff Contact: R. K. Gupta, ext. 301

A5.38/A5.38M:20XX, Specification for Plasma Transferred Arc and Laser Cladding Powders for Surfacing
This specification prescribes the requirements for the classification of plasma transferred arc (PTA) and laser cladding powders for surfacing. The specification does not provide for classification of thermal spray powders.

  • Stakeholders: Manufacturers and consumers of plasma transferred arc and laser cladding powders for surfacing
  • Revised Standard
  • Staff Contact: R. K. Gupta, ext. 301

D17.1/D17.1M:20XX, Specification for Fusion Welding for Aerospace Applications
This specification provides the general welding requirements for welding aircraft and space hardware. It includes but is not limited to the fusion welding of aluminum-based, nickel-based, iron-based, cobalt-based, magnesium-based, and titanium-based alloys using electric arc and high energy beam processes. There are requirements for welding design, personnel, and procedure qualification, inspection, and acceptance criteria for aerospace, support and non-flight hardware. Additional requirements cover repair welding of existing hardware. A commentary for the specification is included.

  • Stakeholders: The aerospace industry and all subcontractors will use this specification for welder certification, inspection, and acceptance of all welded aerospace production hardware
  • Revised Standard
  • Staff Contact: A. Babinski, ext. 310

 

STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC REVIEW

AWS was approved as an accredited standards-preparing organization by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in 1979. AWS rules, as approved by ANSI, require that all standards be open to public review for comment during the approval process. This column also advises of ANSI approval of documents. The standards listed below are under public review. A draft copy may be obtained through the AWS staff contact for the respective standard. Send correspondence to AWS, Standards Development, 8669 NW 36 Street, #130, Miami, FL 33166-6672; telephone (800/305) 443-9353.

D10.22/D10.22M:20XX, Specification for Local Heating of Welds in Creep Strength-Enhanced Ferritic Steels, in Piping and Tubing Using Electric Resistance Heating
New Standard - $32.00 [ANSI Public Review expires 3/5/18]
Staff Contact: S. Borrero, ext. 334

 

ISO DRAFT STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC REVIEW

Copies of the following Draft International Standards are available for review and comment through your national standards body, which in the United States is ANSI, 25 West 43rd Street, Fourth Floor, New York, NY, 10036; telephone (212) 642-4900. Any comments regarding ISO documents should be sent to your national standards body.

In the United States, if you wish to participate in the development of International Standards for welding, contact Andrew Davis at AWS, 8669 NW 36 Street, #130, Miami, FL, 33166-6672; telephone (305) 443-9353 ext. 466, e-mail: adavis@aws.org. Otherwise contact your national standards body.
